As the deadline for payments to start again on student loans approaches, scammers are anxious to cheat student loan borrowers out of their money. Tom Bartholomy of the Better Business Bureau urges you not to fall for scammer’s tricks. There’s an excellent article on the Charlotte Spectrum news website. But let me give you the highlights.
The most important thing to remember is that if someone asks for money from you to wipe out or reduce your student loans, it’s a scam. You’ll make your payment to the scammer, never see any relief, never see the money you paid again, and it won’t affect the outstanding balance on your loans.
There’s an old and very accurate saying that if it sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true. Don’t be the next victim of a too-good-to-be-true scheme. The Better Business Bureau suggests contacting your lender or loan servicing company to see what they can do to give you some relief. And remember that you are not alone in this problem. God wants to help you through your problems, and on the whole, even outrageous student loans are not likely to be the biggest problem you will ever face in your life. Depend on God to help you through this.
Thanks for reading. And please pass this on to anyone you know who could use it. And may God bless your efforts to achieve financial freedom as it leads to spiritual freedom.
